EVH announce new Wolfgang Limited Tour Relic – a faithful replica of the guitar Eddie Van Halen played on the 2015 Van Halen tour. This guitar has received detailed relic treatment by master-builder Chip Ellis. Only 20 guitars will be made – this is going to be a highly collectable limited edition…

For the legion of fans who attended the 2015 Van Halen Tour, it’s unlikely they failed to notice the striking, aged-looking Ivory Wolfgang USA guitar that Eddie Van Halen played onstage.

The custom-built instrument features an Ivory over Stealth Black relic finish, an ebony fingerboard, block fretboard inlays, a red custom kill switch (the one Eddie uses on ‘Eruption’), EVH Custom High Friction (Tone) Pot and an EVH “HPU” or High Performance Upgrade, custom-made Low Friction (Volume) Pot. “It’s the only volume pot I’ve found where I can play ‘Cathedral’ without any crackle or pop,” – Eddie Van Halen.

This custom guitar comes with a Certificate of Authenticity autographed by Eddie Van Halen, EVH instrument cable, EVH strings .009-.042 and an EVH leather strap with the dog-leash clasps.

“Working with Ed on these projects over the years has been amazing. I never thought that I would learn so much working with an artist about guitar construction, setups and sound and everything. I mean, that guy — he’s made my ears better. He’s brought up my game as far as construction because it’s a tough mark to hit. He expects perfection, and it drives you hard”Chip Ellis EVH Master Builder
